Soaking in Devil’s Pool at Victoria Fall
From geography lessons, we know that Victoria Falls attracts thousands of tourists. Surprisingly, they come not to explore the national park, but to make some iconic photos. They are drawn here for The Devil’s Pool. It is a naturally formed eddy sitting at the very edge of the falls. Naturally, they can splash there only then the water is at a safe level. Usually between August and January. Still, who would like to calmly soak there while only a slippery rock barrier is separating you from falling down? Only fearless people.
Scuba diving in the Blue Hole, Egypt
One of the most challenging dive spots for extreme lovers in Egypt. The Blue Hole is a deep, natural sinkhole located in one of the deepest zones of the Red Sea. It is believed that it formed thousands of years ago during the melting of the last ice age.
The Blue hole is a great spot for scuba diving due to the coral reef surrounding its edge. At the same time extremely dangerous because of the one particular dive site- the arch. Many dives believe that they are good and have the skills to dive deeper. Sadly, even some highly trained technical divers and diving instructors have lost their lives. However, in recent years, the Egyptian Chamber For Diving & Water Sports positioned officers who ensure that the divers are accompanied by a certified guide to Blue Hole and follow safety procedures.
